Hello everyone! Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time our challenge is to make a shaker card. I was really happy to see this challenge. When Stampin’ Up!® had the virtual convention this year, Shannon West did a presentation showing how to make an easy shaker card using the Stampin’ Up!® Clear Medium Envelopes and I have wanted to make one. Normally shaker cards take some time to do the shaker part but this was so easy!
Here is my card using the So Much Happy Bundle that is in the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog. This view shows the card standing up. The one below shows it laying down so you can see the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles I used better.
To make the shaker part all you do is take a Stampin’ Up!® Clear Envelope and put a piece of Designer Series Paper and your shaker parts inside it. I used the True Love Designer Series Paper and the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles that are both in the 2021 January – July Mini Catalog. Then you just fold it to the size you need using Tear & Tape to keep it folded and sealed. No messing with adhesive foam strips and acetate. The envelope works great and is so easy!
The rest of the card did not take a lot of time either. I cut a rectangle out of the center of a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I cut the word “Happy” using the Happy Dies from the Annual Catalog and glued it to the back of the piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock so looked like this:
I attached that to the Clear Envelope also using Tear & Tape and then the envelope to a piece of Basic White cardstock. I cut out the sentiment using the Banners Pick A Punch and cut out the stars using the Happy Dies.
Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made. I have a feeling they will use the easier way to make shaker cards like me. They were both watching the video.
Happy Birthday to my oldest youngest sister, Katherine. I hope you have a day as awesome as you are!

Susan, this is such a fantastic shaker card. I love that Hello die across the front of the shaker, against that black background. What a great color contrast. You and I obviously had the same idea, to use the Sprinkles. They really work well in these shakers!
I love how all 3 of you used the ‘easy’ version of making a shaker – what a great idea! This card is so happy & cheerful, too 🙂
I LOVE this. The idea of the rectangle over the shaker is awesome. It makes it look so “finished.” Will we ever do another traditional shaker again? Not me!
